With its simple and easy-to-navigate interface, Flock delivers a feature-rich product for teams to chat in a one-to-one or in a group setting. Unlike popular instant messaging applications, Flock allows employees to sign in using their work email, and automatically syncs the entire office directory to every employee's device, creating a workplace-only environment and eliminating the need to blend work and personal IDs and messages.
"We are passionate about increasing productivity through efficient workplace communications, and are building a set of tools that enable rapid interaction and decision making," said Bhavin Turakhia, CEO and founder of Riva. "Flock just works - it is easy to use, secure, simple and stays out of the way"
